UMN Arabic Reading Group

The Arabic Reading Group is an interdisciplinary reading circle of graduate students and faculty who are interested in reading classical and modern Arabic texts. In years past, the Arabic Reading Group has read a variety of documents to accommodate the diverse specialties of its members: selections from the Qur'an, Abbasid short stories, letters from the Crusader states, medieval discourses on political theory, Arabic translations of Shakespeare, and speeches from Saddam Hussein. 

Elementary knowledge of Arabic is preferred for this group but anyone with an interest in reading the language is welcome to join! Fluency is absolutely NOT required--the idea is for all of us to improve by reading together. 

Anyone interested in attending Arabic Reading Group should email Kate Tuley at
